We do not need this future for our daughters, vote. The dynamic reflects the painstaking efforts among Republicans to avoid the mistakes of 2012. This time around, there aren't any candidates talking about "legitimate rape" or "binders full of women." And the GOP put up strong female candidates in states like Iowa and Michigan, making it harder for Democrats to attack them as opposed to the interests of women.
In the 1950s, women could not hold skilled jobs because they could get pregnant at any time, (and be fired for that). Why train someone, or build a team, with that kind of unreliability. Because they could lose their job, they could not get credit in their own name. A man had to co-sign. Women had no resources or place to go if abused - especially since had no way to provide for their kids. They stayed. They were obedient. These are the "family values" they want for us again.
